About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Biker ID's

The 1962 picture is of Don and Leslie Pink and possibly their daughter. Don's dad started the Don Pink Harley Davidson dealership in Crotona, New York. I competed against Don at many motorcycle off road contests in the 1950's era. A wonderful time of my life, never to be forgotten.

The times, they have a-changed

Today this would get Mom and Dad imprisoned for endangering the welfare of a child.

Seating by Rubbermaid

The child seat appears to be made from a plastic dishpan, with suction cups holding it to the gas tank. Thank goodness for the windshield, so that baby doesn't have to eat bugs.
